fwiw, I have a stack of machines that I would donate if there were some
place to host them. (I was able to acquire them inexpensively from my
last employer; more such machines show up now and then).

I will poke at making some for 11.0. Given the electricity cost (figure
$25/server/mo) I'm not too interested in leaving them on 24x7.
Especially in the Texas summers.
